DSPXtra FM Rocking TK99
The DSPXtra FM is Rocking to over half a million people on WTKW-FM! Galaxy Communications also utilises the rest of the BW Broadcast product range
Syracuse, NY – WTKW-FM is the flagship station of SU Sports.
TK99 (and TK105 in Oswego) is the number one for Classic Rock spearheaded in the mornings by Gomez and Dave.
TK99 and TK105 are independently owned and operated by Galaxy Communications and Tim Backer explains why they choose BW Broadcast products to stay ahead of the competition.
‘We use a DSPXtra FMon TK99 because it gives me the tools to achieve a market leading sound without giving my CFO heartburn! When we were looking for a new processor, I knew we had to compete with the ‘O’ boxes without spending ‘O’ prices. I also prefer low distortion ahead of being 1/10dB louder than the next guy, but still we must be at least on par loudness wise. Thanks to the DSPXtra FM, our station competes comfortably with the other guys who are running much larger, more expensive boxes.
‘We used to run some older 8100’s that I had done extensive modifications to in order to stretch their competitive lifespan, but as soon as I took a demo of the DSPXtra FM, there was no comparison. The improvement is unbelievable. The attention to audio quality along with the Ariane leveller gives me the tools to sound big and loud, but not fake. The DSPXtra maintains control and doesn’t easily go ‘over the top’ like other boxes on the market. The beautiful Ariane stereo image allows me to sound louder by filling the sound stage consistently, allowing me to back off the traditional limiting and clipping levels.’
‘The box is the right number of bands (6) for cohesive and smooth sound, big stereo image thanks to the Ariane and plenty of control over parameters. All in a small package! My rack thanks BW for not having to give up 2 or 3RU, making more space for other products.’
‘The installation itself was quick and easy. I starting tuning a custom preset on the bench before installation and after a few tweaks was very happy indeed!’
‘The DSPXtra FM is excellent value for money. My CFO loves how it competes with other stations in the market that have more expensive boxes; it is like our little secret!’
‘Galaxy communications now have a number of DSPXtra’s, the brilliant RBRX1 and the ever reliable TX150 which seems to just keep going forever! I have recommended BW to a number of people, admittedly outside of our market though!’
